TSN Scout Craig Button's latest draft ranking sees a new addition to the Top 10 and it's a name that sounds familiar.

After sitting in the 11-14 range in the previous rankings, London Knights forward Max Domi – son of former Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets forward Tie Domi - has moved into the 10th spot on the April ranking.

Aside from Domi, there was very little movement at the top of the rankings, with the first eight players all keeping their same spots from the March ranking.

Seth Jones of the WHL's Portland Winterhawks remains at the top of Button's list with 56 points and a plus-46 rating in 61 games this season. 

He is followed by a pair of Halifax Mooseheads: Jonathan Drouin and Nate MacKinnon. Finnish forward Aleksander Barkov of Tappara and Russian winger Valeri Nichushkin round out the Top 5.

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds defenceman Darnell Nurse sits in sixth, while centre Sean Monahan of the Ottawa 67's is seventh, followed by Swedish forward Elias Lindholm of the Elite League's Brynas.  Halifax goaltender Zachary Fucale moved from 10th in March to ninth with Domi rounding out the top 10.

Bo Horvat of London was one of the biggest movers this month, rising to No. 19 after being ranked 24th last month.

Defenceman Ryan Pulock of the Brandon Wheat Kings had the biggest drop in April, falling nine spots to land at No. 25.
